PIGEON
FORGE, Tenn. (August 10, 2015) — Dolly Parton returned home, this past
weekend, to help raise money for her Imagination Library and although
the performances were billed Dolly: Pure & Simple, in
simple Dolly fashion she shined brighter than the stars in the sky. The
four sold-out shows, which took place at Dollywood’s D.P. Celebrity
Theatre raised over $500,000.00.

When welcoming the audience, Dolly said, “Thank you from all the
kids and me! We give books to children all over the world now, and the
Imagination Library started right here in Sevier County, right up here
in these hills. So thank you all for coming. I truly believe that you
can never get enough books into the hands of enough children.”

Currently in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, the Imagination Library has mailed more than 71 million free books!

From Blue Smoke to Backwoods Barbie, 9 to 5 and Coat Of Many Colors,
Dolly captivated the audience show after show performing her latest and
greatest hits. During her performances, Dolly also shared her
excitement for her new resort, “I am so proud of all the things we
are doing here. Of course, it’s our 30th Anniversary, and we’ve been
longing for our own hotel ever since we started Dollywood. Yesterday, I
had a chance to go over to the resort and do some videos and things in
my suite, and I got to see the resort up and breathin’ with real people
in it. We are just so proud of it!”
